    It was the middle of winter when I received an alert that the Northern Lights would be active. The moon was due to rise around midnight. I knew I had a chance to get out before the moon washed out the scene with its light.

    We had just had a fresh snow earlier that day. After checking my first spot I watched the lights dance in the Northern Sky over Tainter Lake just north of Menomonie, WI. As the moon rose I had an idea. I made my way to the north end of the lake in search of the perfect ice shack.

    Walking out onto the ice through 6 inches of fresh powder I searched for my shot. Careful not to walk through my composition I studied the lake looking for the shack that would give me the right composition I was searching for. With the wind blowing the temperatures dropped to -20 degrees. I had to work the next day, but I didn't care if I was out all night. I had to capture and experience this moment. With a vision in mind I was driven and determined to bring it to life.

    Making my way out onto the ice i found this white ice fishing shack out on the lake. With the moon nearly full it cast an almost daylight glow to the scene around me. With the Northern Lights dancing over the shack and the snow glinting like diamonds in the foreground I knew I had my shot.

    Looking off to the left you can see a cabin on the lake. Giving a feeling of home to the scene. I grew up embracing the outdoors, fishing, hunting, and exploring. I could imagine sitting in the ice shanty, fishing, enjoying time of solitude while watching the Northern Lights.
